Welcome to episode #28 where I am pleased to bring you a band that I wasn't sure I'd ever see on the LMP. When I saw that Cake was in the line-up for this year's Wakarusa festival I hoped there might be a chance that a taper would get their set. Fortunately for me Brian Price was able to pull off a great sounding recording and especially fortunate since I missed out on Wakarusa this year.
Cake's catchy guitar riffs, blazing trumpet solos, and off the wall lyrics all make them a great band, but I don't know if they've gotten a lot of live attention. I've seen them a couple times in the past and take if from me if you are fan you will enjoy the show. You can't really argue with the statistics, 9 out of 10 German tourist interviewed agree that their songs rock even though they miss the rising action a little bit. If you didn't get the reference check out the the video to Short Skirt, Long Jacket at about 3:30 in.
